Inbox dread. We’ve all experienced it. After a weekend away, or even a lunch break, and you dread seeing your inbox filled again.

That’s 11.7 hours spent at work and 5.3 hours at home — every week. I don’t know about you but I would gladly spend those 17 hours NOT in my inbox.

Sway is a new digital storytelling app from Microsoft Office that makes it easy to create and share interactive reports, presentations, and more. Users can add text and pictures or even import content from other sources and let Sway create the rest. You won’t be limited to standard boring templates or need graphic designs skills to transform content because Sway has a built-in design engine to make your creation look it’s very best. If you aren’t quite happy with the initial design it is easy to apply another or fully customize one of your own. Sharing your creations is easy and privacy settings allow you control over what is shared. Sway is free to use for anyone with a Microsoft account (Hotmail, Live or Outlook), with more sophisticated Sways available with Office 365 subscription.
Believe (in) the Hype!It's an e xciting start to the weekend here in Philadelphia. Our Eagles are Super Bowl bound , and our city's energy level is at an unprecendented height. To the right, my son- Underdog Nathan- headed off to school today. :)
I've been a rabid Eagles fan my entire life. Growing up, I remember the days of Buddy Ryan. My grandmother, a die-hard Iggles fan, used to sit outside in her green satin embroidered Eagles jacket listening to the game on the radio and cheering on our team.
